He Doesn't Want to Take Medications :( What Can I Do?

User Profile
Hello everybody/
my boyfriend is a bipolar, he has been in hospitals twice and he took medications for a while. But he stopped all medications, and he doesn't want to take them anymore. He is having a lot of mood swings right now, and he wanted to break up with me, but I realized that when he's in his depression mood, I have to be apart of him untill he gets out of it. And so I did. Now he's getting better, but still afraid of our relationship, he told me many times that he doesn't want to hurt me, but I reasured him teling him that I won't be hurt from him and that I can persist all dificulties. Anyway, my problem is how to convince him to go to a psychaitrist to take medications? I read a lot about the bipolar disorder and I know that it's very recommended to a person having this manic depresion all the time.
I need your advices please.

Thank you all.
